I love the campus here at Doane university! the amazing trees and grass all around makes me The class size is also really great the most i've ever seen is thirty to a class. This allows the professors to really get to know students on a personal level and it also makes the professors more approachable. I would like to see the campus food options and the town of Crete's food options increase but they are working on it. Overall Doane is a fantastic place to live and i wouldn't change the four years i'm going to spend here for anything.
Even though the campus scenery is awesome, that is just the start. The professors are there to help, as long as you put forth the effort, and care about each student. It is nice being a smaller campus as well for reasons such as getting to know people quickly and always knowing someone wherever you are. It is a great start for new college students!
I love the overall experience; however, the price is not really in my range and I am going to be paying for it the rest of my life most likely without parental help. Loans are scary and I've had to get two parent plus loans plus the regular subsidized and subsidized. I am hoping in the end it it worth it. I love the teachers that are always helpful and things are hands on. Some of the classes required are more difficult than my major classes!
